    Hi All
    I just Got A New Batch Of Baby Chicks...They ArE One Week Old . The Ones Who Survived Shipping Are Doing Great. HoweverToday I Noticed My Buff Brahma Girl Appears To Have A "Mass" Between Her Legs. Like Looking Like A Toddler Running Around With A Full Diaper. She Gets AroundFine, Eating And Drinking Well,Output Seems Normal ....Acting Just Like The Others! I Maybe Could Say She Is Breathing Harder,And Potentially Lays Down In A Little Different Spot ...I Felt It And It's Hard And Maybe Attached, She's Not Thrilled When I Do That. Like Possibly The Back End Of A Keel Bone??? Compared To The Other Chicks Of The Same Age, It's Abnormal.
    What Could This Be
    How Do I FixI It/How Did It Happen?
    Is She Going To Be Able To Lay Normally If/When It Does Heal?
    Cull?

    Thank You For The Help!

    Is it possible she has pasty butt? Check umbilical area to rule out infection.
